I've been to Elysians Cap Hill location several times over the years and recently made another visit. The atmosphere is decent, but semi-confused. There's a basic bar feel combined with a semi-industrial look. The quality of the beers is generally very good and they most always have something new and different on tap.

The food is decently done bar food and service is always at least good, sometimes great. Elysian, given it's location in hipster central of Seattle, only sometimes falls prey to the snobbish attitude usually found in those areas. The prices are a bit high, but you are in a major city, so the prices aren't out of line. Overall, this Elysian location is probably a must hit if you're visiting Seattle. Those of us that live in the area can enjoy it any time.

Went here after the Sounders game to grab a brew before heading up north. Decently busy with a good vibe going on...but that was quickly squashed by the multiple jerks we encountered who worked there. Mediocre beer. Avoid.

Being from Seattle ive been to this place a few times. Beer is mediocre and so is the food. Don't bother going if the Seahawks or Sounders are playing, you wont get in. Its overpriced for the beer but you're paying fpr the location, I guess.

I came in here not long after they'd sold to AB INBev and that kind of tainted my experience. It shouldn't have but my mind couldn't help feeling a bit resentful.

There were lots of beers in a cooler for to-go sales and a big restaurant feel to the place (Capitol Hill location). Something about the place was sterile and I guess another thing that rubbed me wrong was the liquor on display too. I want a brewery, not a bar, when I visit a brewery or one of its satellites.

Still, the beers here tasted pretty good and the service was fine. Beer selection varied and there were some unique offerings I wouldn't just find in a store. Worth a visit, I suppose.

ok...this is a very simplistic review. i had attended the seattle mariners game and left early(they were getting spanked) to go to elysian. i was one of six or so people at the bar at the time(seats at least twenty five) and ordered their standard ipa..it came in a plastic cup. i requested a glass and was informed game days they will not give a glass. sorry...that sucks ass...they were at maybe 10 percent capacity for the entire place. i left and walked about fifty yards to get myself a nice seattle made pint in a glass. plastic is fine for the ball park, but not a brewpub, especially if i would be considered special it i received one.
